Fishermans Terrace Seafood Restaurant 釣魚台海鮮酒家 is a nice restaurant located inside Aberdeen Mall in Richmond. There are plenty of parking (that is if you are able to maneuver around all the Asian mommies)! Reservations are highly recommended as they are constantly busy throughout the day.
Shrimp and Spinach Dumpling: Eats like a traditional shrimp dumpling just with some added veggies and shaped differently.
Steamed Black Bean Chicken Feet: flash fried and then marinated in bold flavors.
Minced Fish Paste Chinese Donut rice roll: a soft center with some added crunch from the deep fried chinese donut.
Steamed Beef Balls: Well proportioned minced beef and green peas. Flavors are light and has a bouncy texture.
Steamed Pork Dumpling: Minced pork mixed with shrimp and Chinese mushrooms wrapped with thin skin.
Deep Fried Taro Ball: Mashed taro deep fried with a flaky blanket. One of my favorites.
Pan Fried Radish Cake: Comfort food. A great side dish especially if you are having congee.
Ginger and Scallion Steamed Chicken Bun: If you are tired of BBQ pork buns, this is a nice alternative. Equally as juicy and tasty!

Empire Seafood Restaurant is a recently renovated, relocated higher end dim sum / Chinese restaurant in Richmond. It replaced Milestone and the venue is perfect for a wedding. No pillars, video and sound systems are completely synced. Shrimp paste eggplant: […]
Dragon View Chinese Cuisine 龍景軒 in Richmond is one of my favorite dim sum hang outs. It is affiliated with Wah Wing in Coquitlam but the food here on a higher caliber. It is located in Continental Plaza where Pearl Castle 圓香茶坊, Yuu Japanese Tapas, Gyo-O Japanese Restaurant, Deer Garden Signature and Sing Yee Chinese Restaurant also reside. Dragon View is always busy and reservations are expected if you wish to be seated quickly. We must be very lucky, because we usually don’t have to wait too long even without a rsvp. Service here is friendly, prompt and the environment is clean.
The interior has been renovated since it’s old name. It is well lit and also a crowd favorite among wedding parties. There is a good variety of dim sum selections and several large LED TV’s to entice you with features. We’ve order a few extra plates because of this subliminal messaging.
Steamed Black Bean Spareribs: Tender and deeply marinated with a slight chew. I like how they had a good meat to bone ratio.
Garlic Stir Fried Mustard Greens: A distinct horseradish-mustard flavor with bite. There is a nice crunch and leaves to hold the flavors. Well cooked without being too old.
XO Sauce Pan Fried Radish Cake: This radish cake is my favorite (just like my love for Jade Seafood 玉庭軒魚翅海鮮酒家. Slightly crispy exterior with a warm soft center. Garnished with bean sprouts and chives.
Steamed Pork Meat and Peanuts: A steamed dumpling with bite and crunch. Peanuts give a nice fragrant and pork minced meat is cooked just right and moist.
Sliced Fish Congee (bowl): Enough to feed for bowls each or fresh fish slices de-boned. Served with roasted peanuts, preserved vegetables and chives.
Sometimes we definitely over order and have to doggy bag home most of the food.
Steamed Beef Balls: Three giant minced beef balls made with fresh watercress bits that absorbs the flavor during steaming and provides a crunchy texture within each bite. Served with a side of worcestershire sauce for dipping.
Steamed Pork Dumpling Siu Mai: A nice juicy pork dumpling with an awesome big cold-water shrimp and tobiko on top.
So if you are wondering who those two crazy Asian couple are with a table full of food. Come say hi, it could be us!

Yearning for Har Gaw at Red Star Seafood Restaurant Richmond 鴻星海鮮酒家? Craving BBQ Pork Bao? Drooling over dumplings? Who hasn’t spent a lazy afternoon or woken up bloody early in their favourite Chinese restaurant sipping tea and feasting over an assortment of Dim Sum […]
Kings Chinese Cuisine Vancouver 大煌 is located 4488 Main Street (cross-street 29th Ave). We were gathering for lunch after Church. Initially wanting to go to Kirin (on Cambie), but decided to give this place a try after reading some decent reviews on Urbanspoon (88%) and Yelp […]
Shi-Art Chinese Cuisine 食藝海鮮酒家 is located inside Richmond Centre; directly across from Tim Hortons and facing No. 3 Road. It is a small restaurant with a big appetite.
Inside you will find a big chandelier, a fancy red art display and an elaborate window display. Posing to be pretentious with not a lot to offer.
Expect to drop a few coins when your come to Shi-Art. On average each dim sum item is $6. It’s a lil hard to comprehend when the food is mediocre yet more expensive then Jade Seafood, Kirin, or other more prestigious Chinese restaurants.
Price/Entrée: $5-10 (dim sum)
Out of 5… (1: Don’t bother —> 5: Excellent)
Sorry, not reviewing each dish as they were all nothing special. The basic Shrimp Dumpling was thick skinned and lacked seasoning. Egg tarts were cold and the crust was soggy.
I’m not sure whether the staff were over-worked or it was Shi-Art protocol; the servers all looked pissed and had no smile (except for maybe one).
In the end, when our bill came and we paid our dues plus a generous tip; the senior waiter came and counted our money in front of us (at our table)! And questioned whether there was enough money! You have got to be kidding me!
Perhaps offending your customers was a form of flattery back home, but here in Canada it is considered RUDE! Don’t think I’m racist, because I am Chinese. I’m allow to criticize my own race.
Seeing it was Dave’s mom’s birthday we did not want to make a scene. But I desperately wanted to take our tip back, pay only the billed amount and leave…
Gratuity is a sum of money given as a way of rewarding them for their services. I pay good money to enjoy my meals and not be treated like beggars.
Never will we return and neither should you…

Wah Wing Szechuan Restaurant 華榮川菜館 is located in Coquitlam on Lougheed Highway and Westwood. Since Kirin Coquitlam closed its doors back in October 2011, there has been a serious lack of dim sum choices. Wah Wing is hardly new and has been around forever and the place […]
